Remote Learning - Parent Support

Video Tutorials

We have created some video tutorials which you may find useful in supporting your child to access work from Microsoft Office and live lesson through Microsoft Teams.

Using Microsoft TEAMS

Using Microsoft Office at Home



In supporting students with remote learning, parents and carers play a vital role.  All contact with parents and carers will be via Arbor, this includes where a parent or carer requires a message to be passed onto an individual teacher.

IT Access

All students have their login details for each of our online platforms in their student planners. Where this is not accessible, please contact the school via Arbor and we will re-issue students’ details to you.

Where a student does not have access to a tablet, laptop or PC, they can still view the remote learning set on Arbor via a mobile phone. The remote learning can be completed on paper and a photo of the work then submitted on an e-mail via their mobile device.

Supporting Students’ Remote Learning:

Establish routines

Students should stick to completing remote learning in line with their normal school timetable whenever possible.

Location and Technology

Identify a location in the home that is quiet, free from distractions and has a good internet connection. Where possible, monitor online learning so that technology is being used appropriately at all times.

Stay in touch

Encourage students to make use of e-mail to seek further support with their learning from class teachers – it is important that students are contacting teachers themselves.

Supportive & Encouragement

We appreciate that parents and carers are not teachers, but the simple support and encouragement you provide makes a real difference.

Try asking the following questions at the start or end of the day to gauge how they are getting on with their learning:

  • What subjects will you be doing today?
  • What subjects did you submit work for today?
  • How did you find your work today?


Feedback supports students in their learning, however, it is important to note that feedback can take many forms, including self-assessment and whole class verbal feedback. For the purpose of remote learning, feedback will take one of the aforementioned forms, though all students can contact teachers for specific support via e-mail.
